Old Misiok, July 11 Special corre
epoucltnce 1 wrote wy iatt letter on
board the Argo, ' off Keousha ia the
early mote ing of the 2 i inst. A favor
able wind carried us down the lake ia
good timt- past Milwaukee and Port
Washington, with every prospect of
reaching the Macitous during the night.
But a gale sprung up with head wind and
squalls which made us put about aud run
for Milwaukee in quick time. A lull
and the ch tnge of wind enabled us to
turn ahou,t and head once more for the
Manitous. But once more the wind
shifted and drove us back, while terrific
squalls sept the lee scuppers under water
and thoroughly letted the sea-going
qualities ol the boat and the seamanship
of the crew and passengers. After a long
niehtof battling with the tlesients of
wind and vater, the early morning found
us safely anchored in the Sheboygan riv
er, on the laomiHg of the 31, the crew
well tired out with all night's work.
He:e we lay" till the early morning of the
5th waiting for favorable wind, getting
under way at 4 o'clock with fair wind.
Our stay in Sieboygtn enabled us to re
plenish the ship's lanler. and alsnsee the
lively city an.1 assist the natmea in cole
brattos tbe Fourth. Sheboygan is a
town of 20.00'J people, with wide streets,
many fine public ar.d private buildings,
and numerous flourishing manufacturing
interests wondenware, furniture foun
dries, etc. Tbe population is largely
German, an 1 an English name on a sign
is a rare exception. They seem to hsve
many fine horses tere and wheelmen
and wheelvoroen were seen lv scores,
the wooden block pavements affording ex
cellent fbci ities Torcycling. The Fourth
was pnssed in a quiet way. all the popu
lation beiii out, and decorations of stores
and dwellit gs and vessels being general
and .rofusif. There is a fine public nark
in the heart of the city, with its natural
growth of pine still remaining; fine foun
tain and pli.-nty of benches with an arte
sian well o' mineral water iron and sul
phur ever tiowing . Of course our head
quarters were on board the yacht. Your
read'-rs may like to rend our dinner nunu
for the Fourth.

I have never known the ship's steward
to fail in any attempt he has made.
Leaving Sheboygan at, 4 o'clock a. tn.,
a ttesh fair wind bowled us along merrily
for several hours, but a change of wind
again delayed us, and after beating about
all night ard the next day, we anchored
ia the harbor of the South Manitou Island
at 8 p. m. an Monday, in the midst of a
heavy sea, glad of a respite from the 24
hours knocsing about. Here we lay at
anchor for 43 hours waiting for change of
wind. I; ".he meantime we engaged one
of the natives to haul the ship's "Dingey"
or boat on wheels to a small inland lake
where we launched out with rods and lines
and caught about 120 fine perch, with
lunch on shore under spreading beeches
and pints, gathering wild strawberries
The South Manitou is about four by
six miles in extent with a total popula
tion of 7 souls, a number of farms,
wharf, small saw mill and store, and has
one of ths oest harbors on the likes, the
shore line forming a complete half circle.
A Chicago company has recently bought
2.000 acres, includine the entire shore
line of the harbor. The gravel of this
island is the best of any on the lakes and
is used by this company for roofing We
enjoyed ou- two days' forced detention
here, even though our boat rolled, so from
the sea thai we were obliged to put up
the sideboards of the berths to keep from
being rolled out.
Leaving Manitou at 5 p. m. on Wed
nesday we had a fine run for Ave hours to
Cathead Pc int. rounding which with a
fair wind 23 miles sailing would have
brought ue to our destination. But the
wind suddenly changed and after a night
of beating, a calm held us off all the
morning. We reached Old Mission at 2
p. m. and dropped anchor in this beauti
ful harbor under tiring of tbe etin and the
waving of handkerchiefs from the
"family" in tbe cottage.
Old Miss on was formerly an Indiin
mission under the cire of the Pesbyter-
ians, and is one of the moat beautiful lo
cations in the country. When Dr. Lefflng
well Bailed into the harbor 10 years r.go
there were not over six families living oa
this side 'le bay. Tne doctor appre
ciated the beauty of the situation and the
following year on his return he bought
some 30 sc-es, including the inzh biuff,
all tieautif tlly covered with nobie tine
and also some hard wood, noble birch,
oak and beech. Wild flowers are in
abundance, also tbe beautiful ground
cedar with its aromatic berries. Ia fact
the wholi atmosphere is charged
with the resinous ordor of the
pine, and tie place is ready nudi by
Divine Providence as a haven of
rest and ncuperation for weary bodies
and over-worked brains. A syndicate of
bright Michigan capitalists have recently
purchased all tbe ground they could se
cure at Old Mission and are making more
and more popular. Cottages are go
ing up in a 1 directions, coning as bitrh
even $3,500 and $5,000 each, and land has
been sold this season at $10 per front
Old Mission is situated on the peniuu
sula of Grand Traverse bay, 17 miles by
land from Grand Traveree and eight
miles across the bav from Elk Rapids.

Some very extensive improvements are
being madb in the interior of tbe First
Baptist church. Tbe old paper is being
torn eff and iu a few days W. II. John
son, of Burlington, who frescoed Calvary
Baptist church in DtvenDort, will big:n
the work of frescoing. In tbe audiet.ee
room new cathedral glas windows wilt
be put in. The elevation in the rear of tbe
pulpit is being enlarged and made more
convenient lor the choir, anl two tew
furnaces and new gas fixtures are to be
provided. In tbe basement the iufant
class room is being made into a prlor
and the inside wood work of the whole
church will be repainted, 83 that when ail
is completed it will undoubtedly present
one of the neatest appears ices of any of
the chnrches iu tbe city.
At St. Mary's German Catholic church
on Fourth avenue and Twenty-second
street, tbe work of improvement is also
going forward. Stained glass windows
have been put in and the eutire interior is
